[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture in a field which looks like almost desert due to the scorching heat of The Sun.

Those ecosystem in which less than one third of the area has vegetation or other cover.In general,Barren Land has thin soil,sand,or rocks.Barren lands include desarts,dry salt flats,beaches,sand dunes,exposed rock,strip mines,quaries,and gravel pits.

I found this Black Drongo sitting on a dry straw.
The Black Drongo is a small Asian passerine bird of the Drongo family Dicruridae.It is a common resident breeder in much of tropical southern Asia from southwest Iran through India and Sri Lanka east to southern China and Indonesia.It is a wholly Black bird with a distinctive forked tail.

Species:D.macrocercus(Vieillot 1817)

Play behaviour has been observed with birds dropping a leaf in the air and catching it in mid air and these may possibly help young birds acquire aerobatic skills.

Hi Srikumar,maybe your work in PP is a bit hard but the result is original and truly nice,excellent composition,beautiful way to show us this drongo in its habitat.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Srikumar!
Finally a bird shot from you and it is quite decent one. A little painting-like appearance because of the distance involved, but it looks very pleasant to eyes. The contrast between the drongo and remains of a harvested crop is very good and you selected a perfect point of view for this shot. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

Hello Sri
Not your best but nice attempt.
Best wishes

ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, beutiful ambientation, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Ciao Srikumar. Not best focus and sharp. God light and colours.


Hi Srikumar,
nice pic but something is strange with the birds colours and sharpness - perhaps too much work on it ? Not your best!
best regards

Hello Srikumar

Looking to your photo we can imagine it is
shot in difficult conditions, but the pose
of the bird and your POV on it with the
framing are excellent, you wrote me you was
shooting in P mode, try and learn to shoot
in A mode with depending the available light,
the subject you are photographing the DOF
you want choosing the aperture, TFS


Bonsoir Srikumar,
La publication est intéressante mais sa qualité, assez médiocre, ne valorise pas suffisamment et correctement le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Sirkumar, Nice bird pose with great DOF in a warm and natural environment. Thank for sharing
